4th European Conference on ICT for Transport Logistics (ECITL), Thessaloniki 2011
The purpose of the 4th ECITL conference is to advance from the conceptual level of research to practical demonstrators in order to convince shippers, logistics providers and authorities that interoperability offers tangible benefits. System interoperability generates quantifiable savings in terms of cost, lead-time and/or energy efficiency compared to non-interoperable solutions. This shall be done through case studies derived from the projects' pilot studies and relating to for example, door-to-door tracking of cargo, reporting to customs and other authorities, intelligent cargo in emergency situations, and reconciling long term transport planning with short-term execution.
